Hollywood legend Barbra Streisand is perfect for the role of Ben Stiller's mother in the sequel to comedy Meet The Parents, according to her actor husband James Brolin.

Brolin, 63, told reporters at the Golden Globe Awards last month (JAN04) he thinks Streisand would make an excellent choice for the role of MRS FOCKER.

When asked, "She'd play Ben Stiller's mom, Mrs Focker, so she'd be mother Focker, right?" Brolin joked, "Well, yes. But that's what I call her anyway."

The TRAFFIC actor has previously confirmed Streisand, 61, is reading the script for Meet The Fockers, reports website PAGESIX.
